Cool!! Remember to keep it moving! These things will sand a circle in your project real quick if you’re stationary!!

you’d best get some finer sand paper. That looks like 60 grit! I like to use 100 for all around sanding higher numbers for finer finishes. That 60 is really rough stuff. Nice sander though. ;o)

Charles you sure do have some good friends.
Dewalt is highly thought of in Australia. Good tools.
Now you can really get those projects smooth as a baby’s….

I need some friends like yours. I also have a Dewalt ROS like that. I bought an adapters at woodcraft to attach it to a small shop vac hose I have mounted over my workbench. Really works well. I also bought a set of aluminum micro plane disc that also come in handy sometimes.
